Buffs are an item of clothing that the contestants of Survivor wear to identify which tribe they are a member of for the audience.
In the context of Suitman's Survivor they are used purely for tribal recognition and decoration.
Based on the motif of the season, the buffs typically match and follow a particular design regardless of the instalment. The buff shows three logos with a strip down the crease with a design relevant to the season's location or theme. Pre-merge tribe buffs also feature the name of the tribe imprinted between the logos, occasionally with their tribe insignia.
